Itinerary description

Very nice hike though the woods and along the lake, mostly in the shadow of the trees and completely on unpaved trails and roads.

Slight right over the meadow for the panoramic viewpoint. Keep on the gravel road to skip it.

Keep left for the nicer natural trail, but the gravel road is OK too.

Stay un the upper (left) path. The right one takes you down into the valley and to the lake as well, but over much steeper terrain.

Both options are ok. Right will take you down into the valley and you'll then follow a little stream. If you take the left one, as we did, you'll stay higher for longer.

Here under the old oaks and densest shadow of the loop, this organism grows.

We'll keep left and take a little detour to avoid a couple of aggressive dogs that use to be tied next to a house on the more direct path.
